    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I don't know if I would necessarily recommend this audiobook, however the performance of the book by Derren (and of course written by him) means you get a unique perspective on the story. Whilst he doesn't go though how to perform Hypnosis, he does go though the basics of how and why it works the way it does.


    Any additional comments?

    I think if you're either a Derren Brown fan, or interested in Hypnosis, this audiobook is for you. It certainly gives an interesting insight into how Derren, an actual stage performer uses hypnotism. If you're looking for a quick way and verbatim script on how to hypnotise someone, this audiobook isn't really for you, but having said that, Derren does lay down some basics, but doesn't give you a blow by blow on how to Hypnotise a person (or people).

    Few companies in history have ever been as successful and as admired as Google, the company that has transformed the Internet and become an indispensable part of our lives. How has Google done it? Veteran technology reporter Steven Levy was granted unprecedented access to the company, and in this revelatory book he takes listeners inside Google headquarters - the Googleplex - to explain how Google works.

    What did you love best about In the Plex?

    There wasn't one single thing that you could love best about


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best part about this story is having experienced and remembered some of the public events and seeing the story from a new point of view (ie. Google's) and going


    Which character – as performed by L. J. Ganser – was your favorite?

    I can't say that a single character performed by L. J. Ganser was my favourite, as there were many colurful and inspiring figures in the book which I believe the reader captures quite well. When listening to the audiobook, sometimes you can actually feel like you're standing in the room and observing the figureheads go toe to toe with their arguments.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall this is a great book and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who's interested in the internet and the way Google works and performs as it's an excellent insight into the way Google has evolved since the beginning. I am a little disappointed that they didn't go into detail of how, say YouTube functioned, but it is interesting listening to the fan fare around the other products like Wave, or other things that have come out of the Google Labs.
